Make Your Cover Pattern
Your pattern is going to be made out of cardboard cut to the size of your cover. If you are going for the most precise possible "Spoilers” Journal, you'll want to follow the pattern on the left, cutting out the thin dark lines. We were perfectly content to go with an easier (if slightly less screen-accurate) version where we just make a thin border around the edges and up the middle with four panels on either side, as seen in the picture on the right. Whichever you choose to do the glue it down (and let it dry).
